Bravo bigwig and Watch What Happens Live! host Andy Cohen has a new memoir out, and naturally, it’s filled with the kind of gossip that will have stars chucking into their giant roaring fireplaces, a la Citizen Kane.

Sure there are some Bravo-lebrities acting like Bravo-lebrities, but there are also some A-listers letting their true colors show.

The most interesting excerpt that’s been released thus far has to do with Cohen’s run-in with Taylor Swift at an LA bar:

“Why I felt I needed to get involved I will never know (maybe I was auditioning for her squad?) but I innocently said exactly the wrong thing to her, which was, ‘Your friend Katy is sitting in the corner and there’s plenty of room around her,’” he recalls.

According to Cohen, Swift then asked, “Katy who?”

“I said, ‘Perry,’ at which point she clearly let me know that she’s the exact opposite of her friend,” he continues.

Cohen says he cracked a joke at his own expense to lighten the mood, but Tay-Tay wasn’t having it and instructed him not to mention the incident his show.

“She didn’t threaten me about putting it in my book, so here we are,” he writes.

Cohen concludes the anecdote with one of his signature puns, joking that he failed his “squad-ition!”

Obviously, the great thing about this story isn’t that Cohen didn’t make the cut for Taylor’s squad, but that Taylor reacts like a Mariah Carey meme when someone mentions Katy’s name:

On a side note: there’s something we’ve been wondering about the never-ending Katy-Taylor feud this week.

We know that Taylor subtly revealed her presidential preferences on Election Day after remaining mum on the subject throughout her campaign…

And we imagine she’s less than pleased with the outcome.

That said, some part of her has gotta be happy that Katy got screwed, right?

Like, Taylor voted Dem, but Katy literally dressed up as Hillary for Halloween.

Homegirl probably already had captions written for her Lincoln Bedroom selfies.

Given her hatred of all things Katy and the fact that Swift has ties to the Trump family, we’re guessing she’s not as upset about the Donald’s victory as most young feminists.

It’s hard to believe, but so is the fact that Taylor might be coming out with a rap album.

BRB, we’re gonna go take a nap until 2017.
